is beginning to vote to improve an -- approve an internet sales tax that will wreck small business, dan consumers and amount to a huge tax grab for state governments across the country. a terrible idea. ""the kudlow report"" begins right now. ♪ all right. charges were filed against terror suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev. nbc news' pete williams joins us with all the details. good evening, pete. >> well, the combination of evidence here the government says they have, larry, the main thing here is from a surveillance video from the scene of a second bombing, they say they can see dzhokhar tsarnaev come into view. they see him work his way into the crowd, take his backpack off, lower it to the ground. they say still photographs show it down on the ground at his feet and they say one of the most telling moments is when the bomb at the first site goes off. everyone around him looks, virtually everyone, they say, but he is calm, staring straight ahead, not reacting at all. he briefly glances that way, appears to use his telephone, walks away, 13 seconds later the bomb goes off at his location. th
growth, whether it was through tax cuts and other inners and supply side reforms, would you cut them some slack on that or not? >> we would -- we think there's fairly limited room for significant fiscal stimulus that would place public debt on, you know, steeper gradient in terms of its rise. right from the beginning of the process, we recognized the government can use their balance sheet and fiscal measures to offset the decline in private sector demand. so some measures which allow for an easing of the levels of deficit reduction and the pace of that is perfectly consistent with the current rating that we now have on the uk. but can the uk go on a major fiscal stimulus exercise? we don't really think there's much room for maneuver in terms of them to do that in terms of a ratings perspective. >> what happens if they -- they could go on a big tax cutting program and that got rates going. this is more about growth, isn't it, right now, because growth is a way to generate the revenue to bring down the deficit. >> yeah. but that's evident that if you do tax cuts, that you'll get more revenu

have a worry about the consumer and tax refunds will start coming now. credit conditions support employment and certainly consumer staples look very expensive. >> what about utilities up 19% so far this year? utilities are up 16% and health care up 19%. is your money safe in there? will they continue to hold up? >> we've been overweight utilities so i'm not going to be too uncomfortable with that and that's improvement with natural gas prices and in health care it's been very much about dividends and that we saw reimbursement rates that were supposed to be cut recallier this year, and i think it's too late to be on the healthcare bandwagon. >> sectors like materials which have not been with the rally and do you think some of the underperforming sectors will catch up? >> we are worried about materials still and we have to be careful in the u.s., chemicals are 20% metals and mining and look at the s&p 500 materials sector. europe is a big problem for chemical companies and even though they have shale gas as a feed stock, the problem is 20%, 25% of their business is probably going t
where you get this increase in volatility after tax time. and you see all the companies revising their earning forecast to temporary expectations. and so typically in the next month or two we'll have some external macro surprise that will get everyone concerned again. it's been a very consistent pattern that we do well in the fall and the early spring and then cool off and get more volatile. >> rick santelli, markets all waiting for these earnings reports this week. in the meantime among your markets, gold has bounced big today. the dollar is still flirting with 100 yen. what are you watching? what are the benchmarks you're keeping an eye on this week? >> well, you know what, i think the biggest benchmark that i'm going to pay attention to is the dax stock index in germany. it's down about 1.75% on the year. last week not only were eurozone car sales, registrations off, but germany was off in particular. i think keep it simple. i think as those auto numbers deteriorate, it's just going to exaggerate all the other weaker economies. and when you get the imf admitting that austerity
